home24 further accelerates growth in Q1 2021 with 72% order intake growth and 64% higher revenues year-over-year - 
positive adjusted EBITDA margin despite investment ramp-up 
  . home24 demonstrated a strong currency-adjusted order intake growth of 72% in Q1 2021 compared to the same period of 
    the previous year. 
  . Revenues amounted to EUR 159 million in Q1 2021, representing a year-over-year revenue growth of 64% at constant 
  . Adjusted EBITDA margin improved by 4%-points year-over-year to +0.4% in Q1 2021. 
  . Positive momentum continues in April, with incoming orders increased by more than 30% compared to the previous 
    year. April 2020 was the first month significantly affected by a high online demand in the wake of COVID-19. 
Berlin, 11 May 2021 - home24 SE ("home24", the "Company") reported further acceleration of its profitable growth in Q1 
2021. The continued positive trend compared to the previous year shows the increasing decoupling of the Company's 
current business development from the COVID-19 crisis: The change in customer behavior linked to the shift from offline 
to online lays the foundation for home24 to establish itself as one of the leading e-commerce platforms for Home & 
Living. From mid-March 2020 onwards, there has been a strong push for online demand as a result of the first lockdown. 
Compared with the same quarter of last year, order intake in Q1 2021 increased by 72% in constant currency. Due to 
structurally longer procurement times throughout the industry, a huge part of incoming orders from Q1 2021 will be 
delivered in the following months and will then be translated into revenue. The positive momentum is continuing: In 
April 2021, order intake increased by more than 30% year-over-year. This is remarkable because strong pandemic-related 
one-time effects were experienced for the first time in April 2020. During the first lockdown phase in April 2020, 
order intake increased by 74%. 
home24 generated revenues of EUR 159 million in Q1 2021, representing a currency-adjusted growth of 64% compared to Q1 
2020. Including currency effects, revenues increased by 55% compared to the same period of the previous year. In 
Europe, revenues grew by 68% compared with Q1 2020 to EUR 133 million (previous year: EUR 79 million). Brazil's revenue 
came to EUR 26 million (previous year: EUR 24 million) representing a currency-adjusted growth of 47% in Q1 2021. 
Revenues were negatively affected by the temporary, pandemic-related closures of the Company's brick-and-mortar stores. 
In Brazil, offline retail generates around 20% of revenue. The outlets of the European segment were also impacted by 
retail closures. However, the revenue impact of sales of returned goods was limited. 
The adjusted EBITDA margin improved by 4%-points year-over-year to +0% corresponding to an adjusted EBITDA of EUR 0.6 
million in Q1 2021. This improvement in profitability was achieved even though the first quarter is generally 
characterized by seasonally higher investments in customer acquisition. 
Following the successful IPO of its Brazilian subsidiary "Mobly" in February and the capital increase in Europe in 
December 2020, home24 has ample financial flexibility to continuously expand its market position both in Europe and in 
Brazil. As of 31 March 2021, the Group's cash balance amounted to EUR 205 million. 
"In the first three months of 2021, we strengthened our position in the attractive Home & Living 
e-commerce market and achieved the highest quarterly revenue growth in the last six years. Our financial results prove 
that customers are increasingly beginning to love our offering. They are also testimony to the profitable scalability 
of our business model - despite the noticeable operating challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic we deal with. 
Our growth momentum is also reflected in 2.4 million active customers placing orders on our platform in Q1 2021, 55% 
more than at the same time last year," says Marc Appelhoff, CEO of home24. 
home24 confirms its previous guidance for 2021 with revenue growth of 20% to 40% in constant currency and an adjusted 
EBITDA margin in the range of 0% to 2%. Given the continued uncertainty for the remainder of the year in the context of 
the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company continues to believe this corridor is appropriate.
